Full description
Discover a different chapter of Portugal’s fascinating history on this full-day tour through the Minho region, a short drive north from Porto. Join us for this unique trip, arriving first at Guimarães, a city often seen as the birthplace of Portuguese nationality. Settled in the 9th century, this picturesque city is home to a walled historic center, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there we will carry on to the largest city in the Minho region, Braga. The oldest city in Portugal, and one of the oldest in Europe, Braga boasts several beautiful churches, in particular the Braga Cathedral. Enjoy a stop for a traditional lunch in Braga, surrounded by an impressive blend of medieval, neo-classical and baroque architecture.

informative and competent led by a dedicated tour guide

The tour guide picked us up at our hotel in Porto and drove the individual stages of the trip in a small, international group. She provided competent information about the country and its people, as well as about the destinations. Overall, highly recommended.
